I felt so bad for Carly Pearce when this happened! She didn’t seem to have been too embarrassed - but she accidentally dropped the ACM when announcing Dan + Shay as winners.

It was one of those moments where it seemed she thought someone else had grabbed it, but indeed no one had it, and the ACM fell straight to the floor.

We have an ACM in the K92.3 studio from our win for radio station of the year a couple years ago, and those babies are not light! They weigh a good 8-10 lbs!
